Berry Mint Black BCT Premium Blend

As we continue to develop our expanding line of fine teas, we are extra excited to experiment and share our custom BCT Blends. This one pairs a lovely sweet South Indian Nilgiri BOPF black tea with a unique blend of premium fruits and herbs.

This unusual mix will appeal to many different tastes, and it will certainly grab your attention with a big punchy flavor! The fine sweet Nilgiri brings only light astringency and virtually zero bitterness, while a dynamic fruit blend of currant, black currant, lemon peel and hibiscus turn the cup a beautiful red color with a tart fruit punch note right up front. A little spearmint subtly rounds out the vibrant flavor profile; it may be noticeable only in an effervescent aroma and slightly chilly mouthfeel lingering after other flavors fade.

This is a very yummy tea, but because we scored a whole big chest of the Nilgiri tea for a song, we are now making it available at a discount price!

We find this blend to be very versatile – with less or more extraction the flavor profile changes dramatically. Steep for a shorter time (2-3 minutes) to highlight the black tea and spearmint flavors. Steep for a longer time (4-6 minutes) and watch the liquor turn bright red as it further infuses tart flavors of hibiscus, currant, and lemon.

Steeping Time: 2-6 minutes

Water Temp: 212 F

Nilgiri BOPF tea, spearmint, lemon peel, hibiscus, currant, black currant, elderberry, natural and artificial flavorings
